Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic demands improvement

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic insists there is still a lot more to come from his newly assembled squad and has vowed to work them hard over the international break.

The Cottagers, who are priced at 5.00 to be relegated, have only tasted victory once from their opening four Premier League outings but they have put on some impressive displays.

Saturday’s engagement with Brighton at the Amex should have led to their second triumph of the term, however, they allowed a two-goal advantage to slip away.

Andre Schurrle and Aleksandar Mitrovic put the west Londoners 2-0 ahead after an hour of action but they failed to hang on for the win.

Glenn Murray bagged a brace for the south coast club to claim a share of the points and Fulham were ultimately left frustrated by the final result.

Fulham travel to Premier League champions Manchester City after the international break and Jokanovic insists there is a lot more to come from his troops.

Jokanovic said: “We must keep going and working, I made some comment about how old is my team, I said before it is two-and-a-half, three-and-a-half, four-and-a-half, we are now a month old team and in general we know there is important room for improvement.

“This period where there is an international break we are going to try to use it to build on our improvement and try to work altogether and find out better who is who in the team and try and be more competitive and try and win these kind of games like we played today.”
